I was quite impressed by the bands "Behind the Mourners Veil" MCD,
and this album released in 1997 is no deception either - not one weak song.
The album opens up on a spoken passage that seems to be coming straight from
a zombie horror movie and sets the mood for whats coming for the next 68 minutes.
Destructive heavy/thrash metal inheriting from the 80s but with a little 90s
touch sound-wise is a short description of the music on Fearless Undead Machines.
The material here should please a good number of people, from those who like
fast thrash attacks to those who like their stuff heavy and fast but with melodies
- F.U.M. is an excellent mix of both. The vocals are a bit on the extreme side
but without going into growls or anything like that - take usual Thrash vocals
and give a faster, "horrific", or even "scared" edge to
them and thats pretty much what you get here. Hard to put into words really,
but the vocals are very fitting to the horror theme of the album. I really like
the way the songs are written, as the music and the vocals/lyrics seem to have
been written with each other in mind, rather than just adding the lyrics as
an afterthought. Maybe Im seeing a bit too much into this, but it sure sounds
like thats what was done here.
Highly recommended. Now it looks to me like Ill have to acquire all of this
